  • I visited on a weekday in the end of August. There are a lot of people very much though it is a weekday. If you look around the market, there are many shops lined with fresh fish. Oh, my God! Many people want to eat that fish with sashimi, but unfortunately i stopped by at the beginning of my trip, so I couldn't buy it, so I felt sorry for it. There was a shop that also accepted home delivery, but i wanted to eat it on the spot, so I gave up. If you wander around, there is usually a fish shop where sea urchin and scallop sashimi can be eaten on the spot. The sea urchin looks very fresh because it has its body in the cracking of the cara. Soy sauce and spread ing are available. But it is not possible at once, and when I looked at various stores, I noticed that the price and the number of scallops were different...

  • It is a market where fresh food gathers in the main seafood. The sweet shrimp was cheap and delicious. There are not many shops open at night.

  • A lively and clean daily market of Kanazawa! It is the largest fresh food market too. The atmosphere along the covered streets are so colorful. There are many shops and restaurants with excellent local seafood and other produce. Have your lunch here! This is a place not to be missed.
  • One of my favorite fish markets in Japan. You can nice cuts of tuna, salmon and other seafood. Ask them to slice it for dine-in or take out.
